Park office set to move from Krumm Arboretum By Jamee A. Pierson Newton Daily News The relocation of the parks department office from Krumm Arboretum to the Public Works office was one of many topics discussed at the Newton Park Board meeting Wednesday. Additional items such as the Maytag caretaker’s house and Westwood Golf Course also garnered lively conversation. “The game plan is to move my office to the public works building later this year,” parks administrator Nathan

Unsworth said. “We have a contract with Project AWAKE that we are going to honor until August, but eventually it will move us Unsworth over there.” Un s w o r t h said it will cut down an additional location for the parks department and give the department added help by way of the other departments in the building. Parks is currently operating short staffed

following the recent retirement of longtime employees and the decision to hold off hiring new staff to help with budget constraints. It was stated the city will continue a partnership with Project AWAKE, which owns the arboretum. The exact nature of the agreement will be determined and put into writing at a later time. Also discussed with potential plans for the Maytag caretaker’s house. Last month, a work group gathered to discuss uses for both the house and the offices at Krumm should the parks office move.

With the decision to relocate the office to public works, the house is no longer a potential landing spot, leaving it open for new ideas. “The general consensus was to explore renovating the house to serve as a rental, kind of a cabin rental idea,” Unsworth said. Unsworth said the house will still need general renovation work no matter how the house is used. The discussions are still in the beginning phase and no firm decisions have been made. An additional work group met to discuss Westwood

Golf Course and made a list of what the golf course is doing and where it needs to improve. Potential ideas for the facility were also brainstormed for the board to discuss. The group found the course is well maintained, events and tournaments are run well, staff is helpful, prices are fair and lessons are well administered. “The golfers really express that it is well maintained,” board member Marc Jackson said.

Beatle. Kyle Martin has interviewed some incredible musical talents during his 30-year radio career. The current KFJB morning show host in Marshalltown and former Newton radio personality will be inducted into the Iowa Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame this year. “My hobby of loving rock n’ roll has kind of turned into a career,” Martin said. “I can’t play an instrument, but I sure love to play the music, and I love interviewing these guys.” Martin grew up in Denver, Colo., listening to his dad, who hosted a morning show for more than 30 years. After finishing high school in Denver, Martin came to Iowa to study journalism with an emphasis on radio at Drake University. While at Drake, he had the opportunity to work part-time at Des Moines oldies station KIOA. “When I graduated from college, they offered me a full-time radio job,” he said. “I worked with some really talented people. I was in the right place at the right time.” Eventually, Martin ended up in Newton, where he spent more than five years on the radio as KRTI’s morning show host. He said his time in Newton was great. His oldest daughter was born and raised in the town and graduated from Newton High School. The radio gig was nice, too. “I enjoyed it. The music was a lot of fun,” Martin said. “I did some of my better interviews there. It’s a 50,000 watt radio station. That’s pretty powerful. A lot of people listen to you

Caring for your children’s teeth New parents, you may not realize the importance of caring for your infant’s teeth. You should know that serious tooth decay may develop by a child’s first birthday. Even though the child’s primary teeth will eventually be replaced with permanent ones, the primary teeth are critical for proper chewing, speaking, and appearance.

Baby bottle tooth decay is a condition that destroys the primary teeth of an infant or young child. It develops when a baby frequently receives a bottle of milk, formula, fruit juice or sweetened liquids to serve as a pacifier. It may result when the child is allowed to fall asleep with a bottle during naps or at bedtime. Prolonged demand breastfeeding may also cause this condition. Although the teeth

most likely to be damaged are the upper front teeth, others may be affected. Tooth decay is caused by germs which are present in a thin film of plaque that constantly forms on the teeth. The bacteria use sugar as an energy source. In the process, the bacteria produce acids that attack tooth enamel. Frequent, lengthy exposure to sugary liquids can result in attacking the child’s teeth. After many

Being inducted into the Iowa Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame is a huge honor and unexpected, Martin said. The radio man, who named Buddy Holly his all-time favorite artist, had his roots firmly planted in rock n’ roll music thanks to his father’s influence. “I just gained a whole new appreciation of the music through my dad,” he said. “My dad’s been gone for a few years, and I wish he could go to (the induction ceremony). I think he’d be really, really happy and proud.” Contact Justin Jagler at 641-792-3121 ext. 6532 or jjagler@newtondailynews.com

Jamee A. Pierson/Daily News In an effort to bring departments together in a centralized location, the parks department office will move from Krumm Arobretum to the Public Works building at the end of the summer. Parks administrator Nathan Unsworth made the announcement at the parks board meeting on Wednesday.

Parks

Continued from Page 1A Areas to improve include addressing the parking lot, broadening the selections in the Pro Shop, increasing the variety of food and drinks, increase corporate outings, add glow in the dark golf and increasing more events among other ideas. “We have one corporate

membership. Of all of our businesses in Newton, we have one membership,” Jackson said. “We need to greatly improve on that. It was very disappointing” Most of the improvements revolved around the idea of a new clubhouse, which has been a topic of conversation for more than a year. Councilwoman Evelyn George, who often attends the park board meetings, tried to pull fo-

cus to ideas for the course that does not include a new clubhouse, which she said will probably not happen any time soon. “Show us how you can improve. Take a different approach and see which of your ideas will work,” George said. “Now it is time to hone it, what are the things that will prove we are going to get more usage at the golf course? It is about improving the uti-

lization of the golf course with the facilities we have.” A couple of improvements already underway is the implementation of a payment plan for season pass holders and a five punch pass available for purchase. Further discussions for the course are planned for April. Contact Jamee A. Pierson at 641-792-3121 ext. 6534 or jpierson@newtondailynews.com

Birthday trip to Goldie’s Y

In the Neighborhood Pam Rodgers

es it’s true, I hit a milestone birthday this year. I’ve never been one to obsess about my age — perhaps because everyone tells me I don’t look my age. It must be true because I get carded when ordering adult beverages and buying R-rated movies. I honestly didn’t plan anything big for my 30th birthday. I thought about a few options, but what I really wanted was to spend time with my twin sister. We share the same birthday after all. I got my wish as we both took a day off work to have time for just the two of us, doing whatever we wanted to do. We initially had big plans this “sister day.” We talked about wanting to go out for lunch, do some shopping, see a movie and just run around Des Moines enjoying a day of freedom. Ul-

timately, after sleeping in and enjoying a lazy morning, we looked at one another and decided we liked the idea of a quiet peaceful day together instead of running around. I know it doesn’t sound very exciting, but I think I enjoyed that more than the original plan. It was brought back memories of the days before we both had jobs and men in our lives. Not that I’m complaining about having those things, but it’s nice to get a “twin day” every so often. While enjoying our day of leisure, we both quickly realized neither of us felt like cooking. So we started thinking of places to eat. I suggested we go to Goldie’s in Prairie City. OK, time for a confession. In the two years I have lived in Jasper Coun-

ty, I had never made time to go check out this local eatery. Despite countless people telling me about it and suggesting I make the short trip west, I hadn’t accomplished it. Well, for Trish and I’s big day, we finally made it happen. Goldie’s Ice Cream Shoppe has been a staple in Prairie City since 1995. It has all of the lovely appeal of your local town diner that every small town wishes/hopes they have. Trish and I walked in and sat at the counter. Our friendly waitress handed us menus. We looked at the options, but it really wasn’t necessary. We were there to try the tenderloin. I had heard it was voted “Iowa’s Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin” by Iowa Pork Producers. How could I try anything else first? When our sandwiches came — with Goldie’s fries of course — we were both ready to dig into the golden brown goodness. I have to say, it totally lives up to the hype. It was delicious. I was questioning myself all over again as to why I hadn’t

been here yet. Of course, the meal wouldn’t be complete without some sort of ice cream, it’s in the restaurant’s name after all. My brother’s girlfriend recommended the cookie dough twister. Her grandparents lived in Prairie City so she had plenty of knowledge to share. We both got a small, and we were not disappointed. It was the perfect cap to an already scrumptious lunch. I wanted to show support immediately, so I posted photos to Facebook about the perfect birthday meal. It’s not much, but I was happy to let my Facebook friends know I loved it. I have already made mental plans to take my dad there. He loves tenderloins, and he’s always looking for the best one in the state. I found it, and it is right down the road from me.

Super Bowl drenching Whata Super Bowl. Sports history was made before our eyes. I had picked the Atlanta Falcons to win, and relished their first half shellacking of the New England Patriots. However, feeling sorta sorry for Tom Brady, and never being one to kick a man when he’s down, I switched allegiance in the second half and began rooting for the Patriots. Momentum swings are almost predictable and carry tons of life meaning. Ginnie got upset with me. She used to be a Tom Brady fan but changed her mind when she saw him, on national television, blow his nose on his hand. “Eww,” she said. “He has that little towel on his belt, why can’t he use it?” What can I say? At least Ginnie wasn’t picking a team based on the color of their uniforms, which she’s done in the past, then gloated over winning. The Super Bowl, for us, started the day before when Iowa State’s basketball team beat number three Kansas in Lawrence. Iowa State came from a 15-point first-half deficit to pull off a stunning overtime upset. And to think, Ginnie and I had almost gone shopping rather than stay home and watch the game. Then, on Saturday night, Iowa’s own Kurt Warner was inducted into the NFL’s Hall of Fame. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Born in Burlington, Warner grew up in Cedar Rapids and didn’t even start for UNI until his fifth year. While stocking shelves for Hy-Vee, Warner had a bumpy career that included Arena Football for the Iowa Barnstormers, and then a stint playing football in Europe. But he never gave up on his NFL dream. For the St. Louis Rams, he was Trent Green’s backup, until Trent Green went down with a knee injury. Reading Warner’s book, two things stand out for me: his faith in God and his statement, “I always knew I could do it.” During the week preceding Super Bowl Sunday, our pastor, Trey Hegar, had let it be known we could douse him with the traditional Gatorade if he made a point that was more powerful than winning the Super Bowl. In fact, he dared us. Well, the challenge was on. Never one to back down from a dare, Ginnie and I made phone calls and exchanged Facebook messages with other parishioners. We couldn’t let Trey get away with this. Ginnie and I spent Saturday night shredding newspapers and acquiring an orange Gatorade-like cooler from Hy-Vee. On Sunday morning, before church, we stashed the Gatorade cooler in an inconspicuous location. During his sermon, Trey made a weak joke that the Patriots should change their team name to a member of the cat family, “The Cheetahs.” An amalgamation of boos and cheers followed. But Trey did score a point greater than a Super Bowl win when he referenced Isaiah 40:3-5 that Jesus will, “make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low.” That did it. Ginnie and I grabbed the Gatorade cooler, and Lois Roth took up her bucket of confetti. Seeing us approach, Trey thought the tubs were filled with Gatorade. He tried to run but we had him trapped like a rat in the crossfire. Ker-splash! We doused him real good. Only winners get the Gatorade bath. Contact Curt Swarm in Mt. Pleasant at 319-217-0526 or curtswarm@yahoo.com

ANOTHER VIEW

Obamacare repeal must not turn Iowa’s hospitals, citizens into victims By Dwight Baldwin

Paul Ryan, U.S. Speaker of the House of Representatives, said in a recent interview that any repeal of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) would be done so that “no one is worse off.” To keep that promise, Congress should work to reverse hospital payment cuts that were reduced as part of the Affordable Care Act. The initial Obamacare cuts to hospital payments came through Medicare and Medicaid, the federal programs that fund health care services for the poor and the elderly. When hospitals took patients who were insured through Medicare (the elderly) and Medicaid (those with low incomes), the federal government reimbursed hospitals for the care they provided. To raise the money needed to fund Obamacare, the federal government cut hospital payments for those critical programs. That’s why millions of us who live in rural Iowa are relying on Congress to restore the hospital payment cuts that were made to help fund the passage of Obamacare. Without restoring these cuts, many of our local hospitals will be starved of hundreds of billions of dollars and will have no choice but to shut down critical services, putting the health of untold numbers of Iowa’s most vulnerable citizens at risk. Unfortunately, much of rural Iowa is considered medically underserved. That’s why this topic

is important to our state and to my organization, the Iowa State Grange. Rural Americans are statistically older and more likely to be a part of the millions of Medicare beneficiaries, making Medicare functionality and preservation essential for rural residents and Iowa State Grange members. Thus, we are relying on our elected Congressional representatives to act thoughtfully, paying critical attention to the elderly and sick in these underserved regions. Along with the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, we need to be sure that Iowa’s most rural hospitals are getting the funds they need to care for our nation’s most vulnerable citizens, as we believe that access to affordable healthcare should not depend upon geographic location. A study by Virginia-based health insurance consulting firm Dobson/DaVanzo has estimated that total hospital financial losses would exceed $400 billion by 2026 if the Medicare and Medicaid payment cuts are not restored. Iowa hospitals alone would experience a $752 million reduction in Medicaid Disproportionate Hospital Payments (DSH) and the Medicare Market Basket and productivity in the state would be reduced by $2.69 billion from such a repeal, without the restoration of the essential funds. Our community’s hospitals receive roughly half of their funding through Medicare and Medicaid. Losses of that magnitude would result in deep cuts to critical ser-

vices for those in our state, including Iowa State Grange members. Some of our local rural hospitals could even be forced to close, to lay off doctors and nurses, and reduce or eliminate some essential services. Hospitals are often among the largest employers in a community and are the employers of many of our Iowa State Grange members. In 2015, Iowa reported over 68,000 full-time and part-time hospital jobs. Should Congress fail to act, hardworking Iowans will be forced out of their jobs. These cuts would create an economic ripple effect that would spread like a shock wave from community hospitals all across the country. Already, dozens of community hospitals have been forced to close due to these Medicare and Medicaid cuts. Iowa State Grange members do not need to face the harsh reality of an inactive Congress. However one feels about Obamacare, no act of the United States government should turn our rural hospitals and our Iowa State Grange members into its victims. Failing to restore these hospital payments would break Speaker Ryan’s promise that “no one is worse off.” The Iowa State Grange is counting on their thoughtfulness and leadership of those elected to serve on our behalf. Dwight Baldwin, of Kellogg, is the President of the Iowa State Grange, an organization that strives to provide opportunities for individuals and families to develop to their highest potential in order to build stronger communities and states, as well as a stronger nation.

Mom of heroin addicts seeks support to battle depression DEAR ABBY: My daughter and son are heroin addicts. After living through this hell for 11 years, I have reached my breaking point. My daughter, who just turned 18, is in jail. My heart is broken. Therapists, parent sessions, etc. haven’t helped. I’m 60 years old and should be retiring, but my retirement money was all spent on rehabs, etc. I won’t even go into the many items that were stolen from me. How do I move on? I’m so depressed I can’t get out of bed in the morning, and I cry all day. I don’t want to take meds for depression because drugs have caused all my misery. My marriage is falling apart too. How do I carry on with this misery? — MISERABLE IN CONNECTICUT DEAR MISERABLE: The way to carry on is to let it go. If you haven’t heard of Nar-Anon, you should check into it. It’s a support group for the family and friends of people who are addicted to narcotics, based on the principles of Al-Anon, which is for the loved ones of alcoholics. Help is as near as your computer. Visit nar-anon.org to find a group near you, and you will find that you are not as alone as you feel right now. DEAR ABBY: Five years ago I discovered my wife had been cheating on me with an ex-boyfriend for eight years. We have two young children, so we resolved our differences and decided against divorce. Now she says she wants us to have another baby. I feel I cannot handle a pregnancy with her because of her infidelity. As a hands-on father, I would want to be part of the pregnancy and the complications/changes that come with it. How should I handle this and express to her why I cannot (at this point) have another child with her? — HANDS-ON DAD DEAR DAD: Clearly you are not over your wife’s infidelity, and frankly, I can’t blame you. The best way to

get the message across to her would be during marriage counseling. DEAR ABBY: Several years ago I gifted one of my nephews, who was serving in the military at the time, with a .38-caliber revolver that had belonged to my uncle and reportedly had been used during World War I. I also gave his older brother a Colt .45 pistol from World War II. The nephew with the .38 revolver suffered from PTSD and died several years ago. The gun went to his father. My question is, shouldn’t I have been asked if I wanted the revolver returned? I didn’t give it to his father but to him. The father has made no attempt to return it to me. Abby, guns with histories are very personal to owners, and this one was doubly personal and an antique. What should I do? — EMPTY HOLSTER IN TEXAS DEAR EMPTY HOLSTER: Technically, once a gift is given it becomes the property of the person who receives it. Because your nephew is deceased — and I’m assuming his father is his next of kin — the gun became the father’s property. Since the gun has emotional significance to you because of its history, depending upon your relationship with the father, you can ask him to return it — or offer to buy it back from him. However, there is no guarantee he will agree to your request.

1 Man arrested for threatening transgender student

NEVADA — Police in central Iowa have arrested a man they say left messages at a high school threatening to kill a transgender student there. The Nevada Public Safety Department says police arrested 65-year-old Mondell Olson, of Ames, on Wednesday after an investigation into that threat and another harassing voicemail left for a Nevada High School teacher. Authorities say Olson left one message threatening to “kill, brand and cause bodily harm” to the student.

GOP poised to tame political force with bargaining bill DES MOINES (AP) — A plan by Republican lawmakers in Iowa to pass a bill that would cut most collective bargaining rights for public workers could also tame a political force that often supports their opponents. The proposed changes to Iowa’s collective bargaining law would drastically alter how public sector unions are able to negotiate and organize on behalf of roughly 180,000 people in the state. Academics say the ripple effect is weakened unions with reduced membership, less financial stability and a smaller voice in state politics. “The public sector is really the main source of labor strength in this country,” said Alexander Hertel-Fernandez, an assistant professor of international and public affairs at Columbia University who has studied the issue. “If people who are opposed to the labor movement — and in particular, the political support that the labor movement gives to Democrats and progressive causes — can defund that movement, then they can be very effective in passing through other legislation.” Two of the largest public sector unions in Iowa contributed a combined total of more than $1 million to the Iowa

Democratic Party in 2016, a figure that is based on available campaign contribution filings. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Iowa Council 61, which represents 40,000 public employees in the state, contributed at least $550,000 during that period. The political action committee for the Iowa State Education Association, which represents 34,000 Iowa school employees, gave at least $460,000. Such political investment is necessary, said Charlie Wishman, secretary-treasurer for the Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. The group spent at least $75,000 last year toward the Iowa Democratic Party and various candidates. Wishman noted, “If you’re not at the table you’re probably on the menu.” “Even though many unions want to leave politics alone, you can’t leave politics alone,” he said. “Politics won’t leave the union alone.” The collective bargaining legislation would prohibit workers such as teachers, nurses and correctional officers from negotiating over issues such as health insurance, evaluation procedures and extra pay. Some public safety employees such as law enforcement offi-

Iowa Senate holds all-night debate DES MOINES — Democrats in the Republican-controlled Iowa Senate have debated through the night to delay voting on a bill that would eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public workers in the state. The minority party led an hours long effort that began Wednesday morning

and continued after 9 a.m. Thursday. It’s unclear when the Senate will adjourn. The bill would prohibit public sector employees such as teachers, nurses and correctional officers from negotiating over several issues including health insurance, evaluation procedures and extra pay. It’s similar to a 2011 collective bargaining

law in Wisconsin. House and Senate debate over mirror versions of the legislation began Tuesday. Since then, Democrats in both chambers unsuccessfully have tried procedural moves to alter the proposal. Their efforts are not expected to stop the legislation’s expected passage. —AP

cers and firefighters would be exempt from some provisions. Lawmakers began debating the bill in both the state House and Senate on Tuesday, exactly one week after it was introduced to the public. It’s unclear when final votes will happen amid procedural moves Wednesday from Democrats that has taken up several hours. The bill is expected to eventually pass. Tammy Wawro, ISEA president, said her group’s lobbying ensures lawmakers stay focused on public education funding, and her organization has always attempted to gauge support from Republicans. She expressed frustration at a lack of financial data available on

some groups that support the collective bargaining measure. “They have money coming in here that we could never compete with, and that’s what they’re using right now,” she said. A representative for Americans for Prosperity, a national conservative organization backed by billionaires Charles and David Koch, is also registered for the bill. The organization donates generously to conservative causes often backed by Republican candidates. Drew Klein, the Iowa director for the group, said the merits of the collective bargaining bill stands on its own. “This is not a political cru-

sade,” he said. “This is an attempt to rebalance the public and private sectors in the state of Iowa.” Joseph Slater, a professor at the University of Toledo College of Law, has written extensively on organized labor. He was more direct with his belief that the Iowa bill, like a 2011 Wisconsin law before it, is aimed at weakening political support for the Democratic Party. He cited proposals in both pieces of legislation that would require unions to manually collect dues and hold more frequent elections on whether to dismantle. Public safety workers would be subject to those changes in Iowa.

State, feds address cleanup NOW OPEN N O T W E N at oil pipeline protest camp IN BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Federal and state officials announced plans Wednesday to accelerate cleanup at a camp in southern North Dakota that has housed hundreds and sometimes thousands of Dakota Access pipeline opponents. Officials fear the camp near the Cannonball River will soon flood due to warm weather and rapid snowmelt. They worry trash and debris left behind by people who have left in recent weeks might pollute the Missouri River and other nearby waterways. “With the amount of people that

have been out there and the amount of estimated waste and trash out there, there is a good chance it will end up in the river if it is not cleaned up,” Corps spokesman Capt. Ryan Hignight said. Local and federal officials estimate there’s enough trash and debris in the camp to fill about 2,500 pickup trucks. Garbage ranges from trash to building debris to human waste, according to Morton County Emergency Manager Tom Doering. The camp on federal land near the pipeline route has dwindled to a few hundred people as the bat-

tle over the $3.8 billion project to move North Dakota oil to Illinois has largely moved into the courts. The Standing Rock Sioux and others believe a pipeline leak under the Missouri River would contaminate water for millions of people. Developer Energy Transfer Partners says the pipeline is safe. The tribe has asked protesters to leave the area, and has been coordinating cleanup at the camp since late last month. Chairman Dave Archambault said at the time it was being funded from $6 million in donations the tribe received to support its pipeline fight.

Cardinals push past Trojans in 4A playoffs By Jocelyn Sheets Newton Daily News Playing with a lead has been a learning experience for Newton High’s Cardinal girls this season. They had the lead in a couple of contests, couldn’t hold it down the stretch and lost. It was not going to happen again on Wednesday in front a home crowd in Class 4A Region 3 play. Newton saw visiting Waterloo East’s Trojans whittle away at several Cardinal leads — a nine-point second quarter one to trail by three at halftime and an 18-point second-half margin to get within four with less than four minutes left in the game. Newton had the answers and held steady to its lead to win 61-56. The Cardinals (715) advance to the Region 3 semifinals on Saturday. They play ninth-ranked Dallas Center-Grimes (12-9) at 7 p.m. Saturday in Grimes. “We’ve prepared for this all year. We might not have the best record, but we’ve played some of the top teams in the state and competed well all year,” Senior Courtney Jacobsen said. “Those valleys going through those tough games carried us through tonight.” Three was a good number for Newton Wednesday. The Cardinals connected on five of its 10 3-pointers in the third quarter, driving its advantage over the Trojans to 47-29. Coming out of the halftime break with a 26-23 lead, Newton found Jacobsen open twice for 3-pointers. Junior Marcelina Marvelli nailed a trey at the 6:06 mark of the third quarter to finish a 9-0 run for Newton and put it up 35-23. Jacobsen finished with a season-high 17 points and five 3-pointers in the game. When the Trojans made their big fourth-quarter run at Newton,

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Open and in rhythm — Newton High senior Courtney Jacobsen (32) buries this 3-pointer in the second half over two Waterloo East defenders running at her. Jacobsen had five 3-pointers in Wednesday’s Class 4A Region 3 quarterfinal, helping the Cardinals beat visiting Waterloo East 61-56 and advance in the playoffs.

Jacobsen drained a 3-pointer at the 4:37 mark for a 50-40 lead. She connected from long range again with 1:32 to play in the game, pushing the Cardinal lead back to 55-48. “My teammates found me when I was open and I was able to knock the shots down,” Jacobsen said. “We executed pretty well tonight. When they came back on us, we reverted to what we had done in the past a bit. We decided to come together, work through

Spring is in the air F

our words always lets me know that spring is close — “Pitchers and Catchers Report.” It seems like the Major League Baseball season just ended. But already the pitchers and catchers of MLB teams have reported to camps across the country. The best part about this four-word phrase is the temperatures start turning for the better. If you haven’t noticed, or if you don’t ever go outside in the winter, the temperatures have already turned. I hope I don’t jinx it, but starting Friday, we could be getting four straight days in the 60s — in February. The state wrestling tournament usually comes with cold temperatures and snow. This weekend, there will definitely be wrestling fans strolling into Wells Fargo Arena in shorts and

it and get over the hump.” Newton played a lot of the playoff game without its leading scorer, senior Ryanne Rausch, on the court. Rausch was in foul trouble early, going to the Cardinal bench at the 6:22 mark of the second quarter in a 15-all game. She started the third period, but picked up her fourth foul in the opening minute and sat back down. “In our minds, we made it through the first round of the playoffs without our best scor-

er playing a lot because of foul trouble. I’m proud of how our players responded all night and battled,” Newton head coach Brandon Sharp said. “We found ways to weather the storm, taking several steps forward.” A couple of those steps came in the final quarter with Waterloo East putting the pressure on Newton and chipping away at the Cardinal lead. Sharp said the Cardinals had to take a breath, relax and finish. Rausch was back on the

court at the end, re-entering with five minutes remaining in the contest. Waterloo East’s Amanee Clark and Kerris Roberts scored six unanswered points to cut the Newton lead to 50-46 with 3:56 left, Rausch stepped to the free-throw line and sank two foul shots. After Jacobsen delivered her fifth 3-pointer of the night, it was senior Taylor Shipley hitting both ends of a one-and-one to give Newton a 57-48 lead with 1:13 remaining. Rausch sealed the win by sinking 4-of-6 free throws in the final 36 seconds. The teams opened with a back-and-forth first quarter. Rausch hit a 3-pointer with 3:47 left to tie it a 8-all then the Trojans pushed out to a 13-8 lead. Senior post player Ellie Horn, who had a double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds, got loose inside for a bucket for Newton. Rausch, who was 7-of-10 at the free-throw line, sank one. She missed her second attempt but junior Randi Walters was right there for a putback. Newton and Waterloo East were tied 13-13 going into the second quarter. The Trojans’ Selna Collier and Newton’s Ali Bestell traded baskets in the opening minute, and Rausch picked up her third foul. Shipley drilled a 3-pointer to ignite a 9-0 run by the Cardinals. Bestell, Jacobsen and Horn each had baskets to gain a 24-15 lead. Clark and Roberts led a Trojan rally to close the gap to 26-23 at halftime. “They have two really good players in Clark and Roberts. Roberts is one of the best players we’ve played this year in getting into the paint. Clark is a streaky shooter from outside and we knew she could go off,” Sharp said. CARDINALS | 3B

Big second half sends PCM to regional final By Troy Hyde Newton Daily News MONROE — Prairie City-Monroe freshman Regan Freland used to walk the halls in the West Marshall school district. She grew up in State Center playing basketball with players currently on the Trojans’ roster. After scoring a game-high 18 points Wednesday during the Mustangs’ 67-50 Class 3A Region 8 semifinal win over Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont, Freland will get an opportunity to eliminate her former school Saturday. Class 3A No. 11 PCM got off

This & That Troy Hyde T-shirts. While we are still a little ways away from actual MLB games meaning anything, that four-letter phrase gets me fired up for the spring. Spring time is one of the best times of year for me. It has the NFL Draft. My San Francisco 49ers have a new coach and general manager and the No. 2 pick in the draft, so my attention to this event will mean a lot this season. Spring also has March Madness. Those first full four games of basketball is the single best four-day stretch in sports. Eventually baseball will be here again. Opening Day should be a holiday. I saw Tuesday night on ESPN my Cincinnati Reds are one of three teams that have 300-1 odds to win the

to another slow start against the Rockets, but a big third quarter swung the momentum to the home team. Freland hit 6-of-6 from the free-throw line in the final 1:42 to finish off the win. “I am doing this for the seniors. This win feels great. We have one more to go,” said Freland, who is the lone underclassmen in a rotation that includes six seniors. The Mustangs (19-4) will play No. 15 West Marshall in the regional championship game at 7 p.m. Saturday in Bondurant. The Trojans (20-3) defeated Chariton 47-42 in the other Region 8 semifinal game. Freland moved to the PCM

World Series. So you’re saying there’s a chance? While the Reds’ young roster certainly won’t be competing for the World Series title, I don’t think they’ll be that bad. The 2017 season is setting up 2018, which could be the start of a turnaround. The Reds have stockpiled prospects and they plan to unleash this talent in 2017 to see where they sit. If the young guys can produce around MLB MVP candidate Joey Votto, and the pitching staff shows a little promise, the Reds could get to .500. I truly believe they will be better than the pundits think. Spring also is a time to get outside and enjoy warm weather. My 4-year-old is chomping at the bit to get her toys out and play. She can’t wait until daddy pulls her around in her wagon. Or takes her and our dog for a walk. She claims to love snow and rain but does not like cold weather. Go figure. I guess that’s why she’s four. Warm weather also brings about the running season. I have already signed up for a race in May. I will be

school district during her seventh grade year, but she still has plenty of ties to West Marshall. “My dad and brother graduated from there,” Freland said. “It will be a little weird playing them. I know all the girls personally. I used to play with some of them obviously, but it will be fun to beat them.” For the second straight game, the Mustangs came out of the gates slow. The Rockets (16-6) scored the game’s first six points and led by eight two different times following buckets by Claire Jager. MUSTANGS | 2B

participating in the Market to Market Relay race. Our eight-member team will begin the 75-mile trek from Jefferson to downtown Des Moines at around 6:15 a.m. I have heard a lot about this race from a close friend who asked me to join his team this year. I drove by the relay race in Waukee last spring. It looks like a lot of fun. Now all I have to do is find the time to train properly so I don’t make a fool of myself. That seems to be the toughest part for me these days. Spring time also means the start of golf season. My brother and I have gotten more into golf in recent years. We have upgraded all of our stuff and, because my brother is a military veteran, we can golf in Newton for free. So that will be more on the schedule when the courses open for the season. Get out and enjoy the weather this weekend while it’s here. This is Iowa after all. We could get a snowstorm next weekend. Contact Troy Hyde at thyde@newtondailynews.com

Iowa State withstands second-half charge to beat Kansas State MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Before Wednesday night, Solomon Young had just one start for Iowa State and a scoring average of 3.4 points a game. Young’s second start was one for the books. The freshman scored a season-high 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Cyclones to an 87-79 win over Kansas State. Deonte Burton added 17 points, Naz Mitrou-Long Long had 16, Monte Morris 15 and Matt Thomas 14 for Iowa State (16-9, 8-5 Big 12). Young’s previous career high was 12 points against The Citadel and seven rebounds against Mississippi Valley State. “We talked about it in the scouting report that their bigs help the weak side for blocked shots,” Young said. “So always stay in position to get the weak side rebound.”

in six, the last time with 4:09 to play, but in the final 1:03 Iowa State was 11-of-12 from the foul line. The Cyclones made 18-of-22 free throws in the second half to finish 22-of-26 for a seven-point advantage. Big Picture Iowa State: The win was two in a row in Manhattan for the Cyclones, who last did that in 2000 and 01. Kansas State: The Wildcats have lost three straight games at home. Barry Brown had 21 points for Kansas State (16-10, 5-8) with Wesley Iwundu adding 16 with 13 rebounds. ISU built a 19-point lead and led 42-26 at the half before withstanding a furious second half rally from the Wildcats, who got as close as six. “We played very tentative, very casual on the defensive end,” Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. “They (Iowa State)

Mustangs Continued from Page 1B The Mustangs closed the gap to 1412 after the first quarter. They scored the final six points of the period, including a 3-pointer by senior Lexi Timmins. Timmins buried five 3-pointers in the game and scored 17 points off the bench. The Mustang reserves outscored the Rockets’ bench players 21-2. “When she can do that, it’s a big boost for us. We like to get that punch off the bench,” PCM coach Jeff Lindsay said. “When (Timmins) and Bailey (Brodersen) come into the game and play like that, we are a tough team to beat. Bailey played hard, hit some timely buckets and rebounded well.” Brodersen started the second quarter with a tying bucket in the lane. Timmins scored eight of her 17 points in the second period, but the game was still tied 28-all at the break. The game turned early in the third quarter when PCM rattled off nine of the first 10 points of the frame. Freland had five of those points and her 3-pointer triggered a timeout by the Rockets. EBF got to within 39-34, but the Mustangs ended the frame on a 10-2 run and led by 13 after three quarters. “I know everyone thinks that basketball has to be a fast game, but it doesn’t,” Lindsay said. “We had some breakdowns defensively in the first half. That’s uncharacteristic of us. The offense helped us because we answered them at the other end. “I thought they came out in the second half and showed a different sense of calm. They weathered the storm, and I think (EBF) was the team that got tired.” The two teams traded buckets to start the fourth, but Timmins buried her fifth trey of the game to put PCM up 54-38. The Rockets, who won the South Central Conference, didn’t get closer than 13 the rest of the way. “I knew we had to get it done, so I

are a veteran group. They made some tough shots. Once you get a couple of them going, the big kid (Solomon) killed us.” After shooting 34 percent (12-of-35) in the first half, Kansas State shot 58 percent (18-of-31) in the second. An 11-0 run got them within striking distance, 49-42 with 12:27 to play, but the Cyclones pushed the lead back to 15. Twice the Wildcats got with-

three Mustangs to reach double figures. Senior Katie Vande Wall added 14 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals. Senior Kayla Jennings chipped in eight points, seven steals, six assists and five rebounds. Brodersen scored four points, grabbed three boards and had two steals off the bench. The Mustangs finished with 16 steals in the game. They had 11 turnovers, but nine of those came in the first half. “The competition we play in our conference has us prepared. The girls know it takes four quarters to win,” Lindsay said. “They played a very good half of basketball in the second half.” EBF was led by Randie Richmond’s 17 points. Taryn Swartz added 13 points. PCM’s opponent in the regional final — West Marshall — comes into the game with 20 wins. The Trojans got a boost when leading scorer Isabelle Gradwell returned to the lineup Wednesday after missing the last 11 games with a broken fibula. The Trojans won their first 11 games of the season before the Gradwell injury and are now 12-0 with her in the lineup. “They are a certain team with her and a certain team without her,” Lindsay said. “Their record speaks to that. We have to prepare like we are going to face the team they were before she got hurt. We’ll get prepared for them the best we can. They are a tough team.” “This feels awesome,” Timmins said. “We are so excited and can’t wait until Saturday.” Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont 14-14-8-14 — 50 Prairie City-Monroe 12-16-21-18 — 67 EBF (FG/3pt-FT-F-TP) — VerSteegh 2-1-3-5, Swartz 5/3-0-4-13, Richmond 8/1-0-2-17, Alexander 2-3-1-7, Jager 3-0-4-6, Flaig 0-0-1-0, Lane 1-0-0-2.

Stat of the Night With the loss to Iowa State, Weber now has a lower winning percentage than Jim Wooldridge had in his last three seasons at KSU. Injury Report K-State’s DJ Johnson was limited after sitting out against West Virginia on Saturday. Johnson was held scoreless on 0-for-2 shooting.

Cardinals Continued from Page 1B Roberts drove the lane for baskets and drawing fouls against Newton in the second half. She finished with 27 points, going 14-of-18 at the line. Clark hit three 3-pointers on her way to 19 points. The Trojans stayed close to Newton by cashing in 18-of-25 free throw attempts. The Cardinals downed 11-of-21 foul shots. The rebounding was even, 42-42. Rausch scored 10 points for Newton. Walters collected 10 rebounds and dished out five assist. Shipley had six assists and Jacobsen had four rebounds. Horn blocked four shots and handed out three assists. In the other Class 4A Region 3 quarterfinal game Wednesday, Norwalk (4-17) edged Winterset, 47-41. Norwalk plays at No. 14 Boone (17-5) at 7 p.m. Saturday. Newton faces a familiar opponent Saturday in Dallas Center-Grimes, a fellow Little Hawkeye Conference team. The Cardinals lost 56-24 and 58-46 to the Fillies in LHC action. “We have not had a lot of success at their place, but we’re playing in a pretty good position right now,” Sharp said. “We’re looking forward to going there, competing and seeing what happens.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your fellow Sagittarius Mark Twain suggested, “In his private heart no man much respects himself.” Do you believe these sentiments? Though you appear confident, you struggle with doubt, only because you are human.
